Meanwhile, the team wonders why Chase has taken an interest in personal grooming.

The team comes in and finds House reading about a naval base. Foreman brings them the case about a 14-year-old girl, Iris, who had an anaphylactic reaction. House points out his patient, a 4-year-old boy, has had kidney problems and been at death’s door for months. Foreman prepares to drop his case until Adams reads the file and discovers that House’s “patient” died four years ago. House insists that his case is more interesting but Foreman gives him the file and leaves...

Episode Quotes
Dr. Park: I like naval stuff.
Dr. House: I like their oranges and lint.

Dr. Adams: I thought it was relevant.
Dr. House: Death is a consequence, not a symptom. If it's not a symptom, it's not relevant.

Dr. Wilson: You have a dead patient?
Dr. House: Bigotry is boring when we add modifiers. I don't see creed, color, pulse.

Milton: I’d like to inquire as to exactly what procedure you intend to perform on the remains.
Dr. House: Have you ever heard of the North American Man/Dead Boy Love Association?

Dr. Wilson: We have a problem.
Dr. Foreman: Does it limp?

Dr. House: You're right.
Dr. Wilson: You don't even know what I said.
Dr. House: That is ridiculous. Blah blah blah blah blah deaf ears. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Absolutely essential information.

Dr. Wilson: Your job is to keep this machine running. It's your choice to make House a useful tool or a monkey wrench. Cuddy's way didn't fail because she didn't try to control House, she managed him. She knew better than anybody what a tool he could be.

Cultural References
Dr. Wilson: Have you seen Bride of the Monster?

Bride of the Monster is a 1955 horror movie by Ed Wood about a scientist who keeps an octopus near his manor while using nuclear power to create an army of super-soldiers.

Dr. House: Thank you, Igor.

Igor is the stock name used for hunchbacked lab assistants in horror movies.
